Ker Yang is a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist serving clients in the Mid-Wilshire and West Hollywood LA area. She has worked at Pathways under the STAY Process program in Orange County from 2016-2019 serving transitional aged youths who are struggling with severe mental illness and ran a trauma group.
She enjoys working with individuals who are struggling with low self-esteem, past trauma, perfectionism, feeling lost and simply needing a safe place to experience growth and live a meaningful life. Modalities that are incorporated includes emotion-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy and narrative therapy.
Ker Yang has training in emotion-focused therapy for couples and have completed the EFT Externship and the Core Skills Training. She sees couples who are struggling with emotional connection and are feeling disconnected from each other. Ker sees couples who are struggling to share their deepest fears and shame with their partner which keeps them feeling alone and disconnected. This may come out in ways that will unintentionally hurt his or her partner. Most of them have gotten to a place of feeling stuck in their negative cycle, feeling hopeless about their relationship and are contemplating separation.
Ker helps couples to understand their negative cycle and identify where they keep getting stuck and find new ways to communicate including sharing their deepest fears and shame. In doing so, couples will feel more connected with their partner and start to rebuild that love that has been lost.
